As a commuter student, you have many responsibilities and we commend you for accepting these responsibilities and support you in your efforts. Longwood offers a variety of services for commuter students to take advantage of, several of which you may not be familiar with.
The Office of Commuter Life (Lankford 214) offers the most important services for commuters such as emergency roadside kits for on campus use and the option for students to leave a copy of their course schedule with the office (to locate them in case of an emergency).
Over 1,200 of Longwood's 4,500 students live off-campus, many of them in the neighborhoods surrounding the University.
In addition to student housing, these communities comprise a diverse population that includes senior citizens, families with children, and single professionals. Longwood University students constitute an extraordinary segment of the population in the adjacent area; consequently, the impact of your conduct in the community is a major concern to university personnel.
In the eyes of community members, students represent the University even while they are off-campus so we remind you to be considerate of your neighbors, especially keeping in mind that your schedule often differs considerably with other residents' schedules. Furthermore, please remain responsive to local issues such as noise, parking, zoning laws, trash removal, property upkeep, and alcohol usage.
